It looks very much like my wife will be having a thyroidectomy as we are told by the endo that a nodule has grown to about the size of a satsuma! which is pushing over the windpipe..
Anyway, she sees the surgeon on Wednesday to discuss, so will have some questions, like will the the thyroid come out cleanly or with the growth could a vein and nerve be involved, embedded within? Or is the procedure very straightforward, (CT and MRI scans will reveal all?) and I shouldn't worry? but I do, as being an anxiety sufferer makes it worse, and I try not to bother my wife too much with my worries, as she seems quite upbeat about it all..has anyone else gone through similar? Thanks..
